and should i still run the cooler because i noticed he didn't have one on his when we were demoing his truck for the SAS
Thanks for everything
First of all I would ask the guy who supplied the rack if he still has the original 2001 hose available. There's a chance that it would fit your power steering pump. If not, you could always check with a parts store for a 2001 hose and check it for fit.
If the 2001 hose doesn't match up to the 98 PS pump, it may be possible to combine most of the 98 hose assembly with the 2001 lower fitting using a high pressure 3/8" compression fitting. I did basically the same thing when I did my V8 swap using a 99 Explorer upper with a 2001+ Ranger lower.
